Lower Urubamba : oil & gas interests and Peru's Rainforest and native peoples

Peru's Rainforest and native peoples are under development pressure from the outside world. Instigated by foreign oil & gas interests (Shell & Hunt Oil) and ratified by the Peruvian government, the lower Urubamba River Basin, its Rainforests and its people are losing their ability to self-determination. This is their story. This piece is excerpted from the Documentary Feature "Block 57" for broadcast on PBS' Foreign Exchange (October 2007). Go to www.loneoutpost.com for more info.
